In our recent Ofsted inspection, one of the inspectors used a beauty therapy lesson as an example of best practice: ‘In many practical lessons learners work well in groups, pairs and across levels and courses to share ideas and learn from each other. For example in a beauty therapy lesson, learners on advanced programmes successfully mentored intermediate-level learners. They helped them prepare for a forthcoming college theatre production by advising them on a range of beauty therapy treatments such as eyebrow shaping and theatrical makeup. This emphasis and these activities prepare learners extremely well for progression to employment and higher education.’
